together. >>pat: up all night. >>neil: now, to the early voters in columbus, ohio, president obama is in that city right new and about to speak there. governor romney's campaign announcing they will be back in ohio tomorrow as pat reminded me that is not unprecedented but it is unusual. both sides are headed up to the buckeye state. and it is too close to call. but many are saying you may want to credit ohio republican senator bob portman who plays in each of the debate preparations the role of president obama and certainly in the debate that matters, the first one, well, it mattered, and the president elect romney owes this gentleman a good deal. senator, very good to you have. how is your state looking? >>guest: good. i love what pat said, he is right. the passion and the inering is on our side this year. i think that if you look at western pennsylvania and eastern ohio there are similarities because that is coal country and natural gas country and we are overperforming in eastern ohio and they are overperforming in western person a reason that pennsylvania is on the map so i am

restaurant? downtown, columbus, ohio. this is the state that could be the place where the next president of the united states is decided. and we have crews everywhere. we want to tell you first off, though, president barack obama and his challenger mitt romney have no space in their schedules today, and why should they? i want you to look at the number on the bottom of your screen. it says, two days. two days is what's left before the election in america. the two candidates and their camps are all over america today. president obama a at functions from new hampshire to colorado, while mitt romney is keeping his attention focused on states further east. they're working late, too. one of the president's events is at 10:30 tonight in aurora, colorado. that is mitt romney and his wife ann at an energetic gop rally this afternoon. that's in cleveland, ohio. he told supporters a slogan used by the president four years ago better applies to him this time around. >> if you believe we can do better, if you believe america should be on a better course or if you're tired of being tired, then i ask

, the news continues with don lemon in columbus, ohio, battleground stat state. >>> thank you very much, fredricka, i'm don lemon. good evening, everyone, from the beautiful boat house restaurant in downtown columbus, ohio, we're coming to you tonight from a critical swing state, a state, quite frankly, with the luxury to call itself the swing state. a state in our minds and hearts that can only call itself devastated, places like jersey and new york. for almost a week now, we have been watching people literally fight for their lives. >> we are going to die. you don't understand, you got to get your trucks here on this corner. >> nearly 3 million people, still without power in 15 states. 106 people are dead now, and leaders say they could find more bodies underneath the rubble or washing to shore. now, that is a background, but with no gas and water in some places and with food and shelter in short supply in many places, where would politics? specifically voting, be on your list of priorities? it is not very high, even for the governor of new jersey. >> i have the job here in new jersey
of all battlegrounds, welcome back from columbus. 2% of the electorate in ohio are women. 55%. the combination of the diversity obama coalition. you add it up, simple math. as bill clinton said, just a -- >> in that speech. there was another area that was traditionally republican, but it shifted. >> we'll do a little -- turn this up. if you look at this close presidential election, 2004, post presidential elections in american politics won the suburbs. this is the 2000 election. you see bush winning in the denver suburbs. the president wins, the democrats win in downtown. that's senator kerry in that year. but now, 2012. it's blue. in the key swing states, the democrats dominate in the suburbs. back over to ohio and let's make sure, now mitt romney did a good job. he won lake county, which is a trouble spot, but that's a big suburb just outside of cleveland, but look around columbus. sorry. outside of the columbus city where you were in, the president wins in the suburbs. down here in cincinnati and around here, this has to be for the, look at this election. go back to 2004.
president obama and medtronic. then he is off to columbus ohio and finally will end up in manchester, new hampshire, before heading back to ohio for tomorrow. springsteen joining president obama and a rally in wisconsin. spinning the final day of the presidential campaign travelling on air force one with the president. obama is going from madison, wisconsin to columbus ohio where he will only be 7 miles away from romney. after that he is off to do more income iowa, before settling in illinois will his -- where he will sit on election day with his family. no public events scheduled. with more on the last day of campaigning, joining me now, president of the american action for and former cbo director. co-host of the five on fox news and ed rollins, republican strategist and a fox news contributor. i want to start with you. you have so much experience with these campaigns. of course we have been watching all of these. polls which don't give us a clue to who will win tomorrow. big question now is, who has the momentum? ed, hootie you think has the momentum? >> i think romney has the momentum
expect in columbus, ohio, last night. even though he had bruce springsteen and jay-z warming up the crowd. the nationwide arena looks half empty from the pictures. sandra smith is tracking swing states in the united states. that would include ohio. sandra, which is the key county, killer county in ohio? >> i have circled them. hamilton is the in the southwest corner this is the county which since gnaty is us whoed. important to know why we're watching that. hamilton where columbus lies. specifically watching cincinnati the poverty rate is very high. among the highest in the state. and by the way, this was a key win for president obama in the last election. a democrat won, president obama, for the first time in the last election dating back to 1964. so that will be key to watch tonight. then there's columbus. this of course houses ohio state university, about 60,000 students live in the columbus area. that too is going to be key to watch tonight. as the younger crowd is obviously going to be a big focus there. stuart, as we continue to watch results come in, 7:30 closing as well at that ti
had reaction in the last hour where he was campaigning in columbus, ohio, down state from you, and let me play a quick sound bite we have been able to turn. >> today, our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learn ed that the companies have hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> so, ali, being that you are in ohio and perhaps the most critical swing state. i asked christine about the swing states burk, but i did noe enough time for an answer, but how are the people in ohio reacting to these numbers, because their jobs are generally good. >> well, you know, christine over me, but this is ohio a place troubled for years and decade. they had the second biggest steel producer after pittsburgh and then autos and autos started to take a hit in 2005. unemployment now is lower than the national average in ohio, in the rust belt. now a lot of things are going on here. natural gas, and the auto industry is back, and i'm in toledo where there is a jeep plant and i was in youngstown where the large gm plant exists. look at the
? >> reporter: obama went to columbus, ohio, this afternoon, jay-z joining bruce springsteen on the bill. but we drove across the farmland to iowa to catch up with the campaign in des moines. here we go, crossing the mighty mississippi river from wisconsin, battleground state. into iowa, battleground state, where it all began politically for barack obama, which he needs to come through for him again this year. they were lining up to register and vote in dubuque, both sides looking for every single supporter. scott faulkner didn't vote last time. but is coming out for romney. >> felt like this time needed to make my vote count. things look like they'll be close, so time to make it happen. >> reporter: you could decide the election. >> that's right. >> reporter: the last rally of barack obama's historic political journey, the end of a long, hard and often ugly campaign on both sides, and the end of the obama era? or the start of a new chapter, a new chance for him, for them, for hope? so they've given us a souvenir to commemorate this, finish where we started. they hope they send him back to washi
to deciding the outcome. lest. jeff flock is in columbus with the latest. jeff? >> of all the tossup states, the greatest among these is ohio which is why there's a big rally planned here today. i'm at the nationwide arena, and i want to take you inside, not only is president obama going to be here today, but a lot of the folks are here to see srb -- can i sneak in? thank you. here to see jay-z, and bruce springsteen. the folks here are fortunate to get a personal seat not just to see the president, but the entertainers as well. that's all part of the effort to energize the base and get voters out. we were earlier today, early voting location. it's amazing to me the lines. if anybody gets in line before 2, ends at 2, about an hour, if anyone is in line at 2, they will be allowed to vote, and, of course, this early voting, very important, democrats have the lead on that, and just getting them chargedded up, and according to those who know, what they are coming down to as close as the race is. one person said, i just hope somebody wins tomorrow. >> that's right. >> i hope it's not a huge mess
, north carolina. joe hallett of the columbus dispatch in ohio. from milwaukee, wisconsin, craig gilbert, washington bureau chief for "milwaukee journal sentinel." thank you for being here. start going around the horn. first to you, rob. in north carolina. the real clear politics average of polls down there, this is the average of five latest polls. mitt romney is up 49.8% to 46%. this is a lot closer than actually many republicans thought it would be at this point. >> well, north carolina is a curious battleground state. we don't have the presidential candidates here. president obama has not been here since the convention in charlotte. governor romney was here once when he met with reverend billy graham. the republicans had hoped to put this state out of play by the summer. that hasn't happened. governor romney does have a small lean here but it's within the margin of error, the most recent, the most recent polls. even without the candidates this has been, there has been a lot going on here. $70 million of tv ads spent here. there is a heavy, heavy ground game here, including hundreds o
reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008. secondly, ohio is a republican state. 20 of the last 24 years we had republican governors. the legislature is overwhelmingly republican. every elected member of the supreme court of ohio is republican. 75% of elected officials in 88 counties are republicans. and thirdly, by independent voting measures, 10% to 15% of independent voters in ohio are going to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom. vote for the biblical definition of marriage. vote for life. there is half a million catholics energized in south, ohio, to pull the lever for mitt romney. mitt romney will win, ohio, and is going to win ohio easily. >> sean: wisconsin? >> wisconsin will go for romney because what walker did and what
by vitac -- www.vitac.com >> alp >> all righ>> all i'n columbus ohio at the boathouse restaurant. we're in a state that holds 18 electoral votes. i want you to look at this. it is cnn's most up-to-date polls. 50% for the president. 47% for republican mitt romney. but, with the sampling error, it is a dead heat. now, look at this coverage. three days to go and cnn has a battleground state covered like no other news network. all over nevada, wisconsin and here in ohio. all across this country, i'm going to take you on the road with both campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn
on air force one with the president as he heads to his next stop in columbus, ohio. will also go go to the third stop in ohio. last night was stevie wonder and other performers over the last few weeks to draw the big crowds to these events but also to energize the base to make sure that folks not only get out to vote but as they've been pushing for the last few weeks, they get out and vote early. they've been using thooiz these superstars, if you will, in the music world, to provide energy to this campaign, get the voters out there, which will be critical on election day. >> people who cover campaigns for a living and there are many of us here at cnn, they get a feel on a day like today. they get a feel from the campaign themselves, made a lot of close ties within the obama campaign at this point. what is that feel when it comes to how they are doing today? they'll all tell you they're optimistic, but do you get that sense. >> reporter: i am getting the sense that they're more and more optimistic. the reason is they point to the ground game. back to 2008, they had a very established
will it means court battles like we saw in florida in 2000. we're joined now from columbus, ohio. good morning, scott. >> reporter: good morning, carl. if it is close, even remotely as close as florida 2000, there are a lot of people who say the legal battles could make florida 2000 look like child's play. we'll have more on that later in the program. ohio is a tricky state. economically and so on which we'll also get to in a moment. i want to tell you about turnout. 1.8 million absentee ballots sent out in ohio. that's a record. as you can see, the students have been turning out here at ohio state university so there is a youth vote turnout as well. it is a tricky state in the campaign narrative this time around. the question is who gets credit for an economy that's doing better than the rest of the country? is it the auto bailout and stimulus? give credit to the president? or did all of this happen in spite of the president and with thanks to the state's republican governor who was on "meet the press" on sunday. >> we made ohio safe for business expansion. we balanced our budget. running hal
. >>> president obama getting ready to speak at a rally in columbus, ohio. we'll go there when we see him. meanwhile, we're going to quickly which can in on three of the battleground states that we expect potentially decide this presidential election. let's start with ohio. its 18 electoral votes are crucial. you've heard it a million times by now. but history show that is republicans don't win the white house if they don't carry ohio. president obama won ohio back in 2008. george bush barely carried ohio in 2004. cnn's martin savidge joins us from cleveland. early voting, martin, very important for the president. how's it looking where you are in cleveland right now? >> reporter: well, at least the cnn poll of the early voters seem to be going very much in president obama's favor. let me point out something here. the early voting has finally come to an end in the state of ohio. the reason i say finally is it began october 2nd. it ended at 2:00 this afternoon. the complete tallies for the state are not up. but up until friday, 1.6 million early votes were cast. of that, 1.1 million were a
off to columbus, ohio. followed by a stop in des moines, iowa, before ending the day in his hometown of chicago, where he will likely watch the election results come in. governor romney visiting battleground states including virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. we are also told that he will not be arriving in his hometown of belmont, massachusetts, until overnight tonight. what do the candidates campaign stops reveal about their strategies? and also what their internal polling tells him? joining me now is chris stirewalt. and michael brown. let me start with you. what does it tell us? >> it sounds like mitt romney is very eager to keep the path to the presidency to him open. that is to win ohio. if he can close what seems to be a persistent that small gap in ohio, his chances of winning the overall presidency are much higher. that's what he wants to do. megyn: michael, what does it say about mitt romney campaign on election day. something obama is not going to do. >> we are seeing a close election in multiple states. in the polling and in the public polling, we are saying the same thin
? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and the guy who predicted this could happen more than two years ago. november 2, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm chuck todd. let's get to my first read of the morning. four days after one of the worst storms ever to hit the country residents are reeling from sandy's impact. according to an early estimate from ploody's analytic the damage will approach $50 billion including property damage and loss of economic aft ty. more than 3.5 home owners and businesses are facing a day without power. the good news the number keeps coming down but there are still millions without power and then new york, staten island where at least 90 people were killed. the situation is particularly grim and residents are still cold, hungry, without power and supplies. they now feel a profound sense of loss and are getting in
, thanks for that update. now to battleground ohio, kelly o'donnell live in columbus. the polls close at 7:30 in ohio and it could be a long night, indeed, if it's as close as it has been predicted. >> well, andrea, there's certainly a lot of enthusiasm here. there are four precincts that are voting at this one location and we've seen at different times today, some long lines, especially sort of the before work crowd. it tapered off a bit, but people seemed to be able to get in and get out. we've seen lots of families coming, kids getting to see the process up close with moms and dads. a lot of enthusiasm. more broadly, we're hearing from both campaigns about their relative confidence about what's happening in ohio. the obama team has stressed to us they have had a structure in place with lots of offices making it easy for volunteers to work the phones and help out. we've met some of those today who want to maximize voter turnout. we're hearing from team romney in ohio that they believe that there is a strong voter turnout in communities that they say could benefit the governor. in more su
more democratic crowd but turnout is big everywhere, including at the columbus area precinct where ohio senator rob portman cast his ballot today. he says that independents are turning out. they favor governor romney. in many respects, the voters are rendering judgment on a strong ohio economy. take a look at the numbers. the unemployment rate here, 7%, that's below the national average. the state ranks third in the nation for job growth over the past year. and in our america's top states for business rankings this year, third for low cost of doing business. but who gets credit for that, the democrats and support of president obama say it's the auto bailout you can the stimulus. supporters of governor romney say it's republican governor john kasich and the strides this state has made are in spite of president obama. economist jason sell legman here at ohio state says it really has to do a lot with ohio's diverse economy. >> we, of course, both make things but we make things for each other, so there are export and import dynamics. >> what is -- will have to be different by the obama admi
in ohio. i want to show you three parts in particular, suburbs of cleveland, columbus and cincinnati. a lot of attention on these spots. let's go in here to lake county. lake county. 2% of the population, the president personally spending time here. why? in 2004, this went to bush. this is territory the president got and he's trying to hold on to. 2008, the president had a slim margin here in lake county. he's definitely trying to hold on to that. columbus, both candidates interested in keeping ahold of this territory. it's 9% of the population. and you come down here to hamilton county, 7%, both candidates spending a lot of time around cincinnati. again, back in 2004, this was bush territory. the president taking that last time around, trying to defend this territory. that's why spare spending so much time personally in ohio. >> hopefully for them the math works. if you camp out you can keep those votes you had last time around. >> that's right. >>> other stories making news, zoraida has those stories. >>> coastal communities are sitting in the path of nor'easter. 1.2 million people
in washington. still plenty cold out there to the west and north. pittsburgh 29 degrees. 27 in columbus. 37 in new york city. good news, not only we'll warm up, but they'll warm up with sunshine into new jersey and new york over the next couple of days. is . >> that's good. >> high pressure will move overhead later today. that will give us plenty of bright sunshine. little cool with highs in the mid- to upper 50s. but less wind. cold overnight. sunday and monday winds out of the south and west, and that means warmer air on the way. lots of sunshine with a nice warming trend. 57 today. mid-60s tomorrow. close to 70 sunday and monday afternoon. sunday veteran's day. monday many people get a holiday. good couple of days for holidays. >> are schools closed monday? no? >> not montgomery county. it's a half day, i believe. >> energy -- federal government is closed, right? >> julie wright is standing by with traffic. >> are we working monday? >> yes. >> we work every day. >> darn! we need that rule, if the schools are out, we're out, too. >> i like that. >> on the roads now you'll find north of t
pittsburgh. 30 in columbus. 38 this morning in new york city. still have this cold chunk of air and area of high pressure to our north. that will be a good thing, because it will give us clearing skies shortly. few light showers south and east of the city. southern maryland, st. mary's city, might encounter a light shower or across the bay into st. michaels. few light sprinkles early. upper level disturbance moving through quickly. should move north and east, and you can see into the west now where we're getting clearing skies and that means lots of sunshine shortly. i think by 9:00, 10:00 this morning, should be mostly sunny and bright and beautiful afternoon. 54 today. weekend forecast generally looking good. 54 tomorrow. sunday, partly sunny. redskins and d.c. united. will not be raining, but clouds sunday afternoon. monday cloudy. most of next week looks quiet. traveling tuesday and wednesday, thursday looks good, too, for thanksgiving. >> thanks, tuck. >> let's go to julie wright now. >> good morning, tony, allison, tucker. you'll find traffi
on buses. traffic at a standstill outside of our studio here in columbus circle. 1.7 million people without power in the wake of superstorm sandy. a storm that killed 56 people. the crisis is far from over. ambulances tonight lining up outside of new york's bellvue hospital to evacuate 700 patients. pumps that supply oil to generators are under water. the new jersey flames raging through the shore town of mantoloking. but picture of the day has to be this. the mutual admiration society saw president and governor chris christie. this is what the president promised the victims of superstorm sandy. >> we are here for you. we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure you get all of the help you need until you rebuild. >> meanwhile, six days until election day, mitt romney is in the must-win state of florida with a new bipartisan tone. >> i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good democrats and republicans to work together. good democrats love america, just like good republicans love america. >> michael moore is here to react to all of the events and if you have questions t
now headed to republican territory in that state. the stop is in lima outside of columbus. his third event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas.
